Mr. and Mrs. Est. 2017
Our love story began on stage.
In 2012, we were working on a production together and something changed. With extra rehearsals scheduled in the evening, and helping each other memorize our lines, all of a sudden we started to realize our chemistry reached beyond the stage proscenium. We fell in love.
Our relationship has always been one with a solid foundation in laughter, fun, and putting each other first. Throughout the years of developing careers and swerving paths, our love was the constant. We are so excited to now have a business with roots that dig deep into the celebration of that love.
When we look back at our wedding day, one of the happiest memories we have is of everyone dancing! We want you to have the same beautiful memory. After meaningful careers throughout California and New York, we have moved back home to Las Vegas to embark on our ManfrediToDance journey. We are excited to bring our 10+ years experience in the professional theatre and dance industry to your wedding dance floor.
MR. NICHOLAS MANFREDI
Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nicholas found his love of performing when injuries kept him from his first love: Basketball. He continued to follow his passion for his second love (the Arts) to Santa Clara University where he met the most important love he would ever have, Samantha (pictured right). After finishing his BA in Theatre and Dance, he completed his MFA in Drama at UC Irvine while appearing in commercials and on television, and then began preparing for the most important day of his life - his wedding day. Perhaps, it was on this occasion that his fourth love became evident - weddings! Upon moving to NYC, Nicholas began a career in luxury customer service and he cannot wait to bring you the very highest level of client experience as you dance with him and his talented bride! Ultimately, Nicholas loves people, and he will be honored to truly get to know you and make your wedding dance dreams come true.
MRS. SAMANTHA MANFREDI
Originally from California, Samantha has an extensive background in the performing arts industry. After graduating from Santa Clara University with a BA in Theatre and Dance, Samantha became Artistic Director for a non-profit theatre company, managed the Arts for Social Justice Program at Santa Clara University, performed professionally, and taught theatre and dance across the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2017, Samantha and Nicholas moved to New York where she continued her career in the arts industry as Manager of Programs at Artists Striving to End Poverty (ASTEP). Samantha has created original workshops and programs for communities throughout the United States and internationally, with participants ranging in age from 4 years old to 70 years old. Ultimately, Samantha loves bringing stories to life, and she would be honored to bring your love story to life through dance at your wedding.
"When you do dance, I wish you
A wave o' th' sea, that you might ever do
Nothing but that."
